General Description

Glass Service srl has designed and installed several tableware furnaces for automatic as well as semi-automatic or manual production.

Our furnace designs are in the range of 3 to 60 tpd

Glass types include:

  • soda lime glass

  • barium glass

  • barium & lead glass

  • lead crystal

the glass colours are:

  • flint

  • extra flint

  • green (antique glass)

  • coloured glass

The furnace are usually of recuperative type with metal recuperators up to 40-50 tpd. For larger installations, a regenerative furnace is the most suitable and efficient solution.

The design can include:

  • gathering bays, with manual gathering or gathering by robots

  • forehearths and feeders, in the case of automatic machines

The furnaces can be equipped with colouring forehearths for special glass production.

The use of thermal barriers using electric boosters or air bubbling is also recommend in the case of large variations in glass pull.

In gathering bays the use of stirring mechanisms is recommend for the removal of bubbles created during the gathering porcess.

The refractory design will change according to the glass type and the chemical interactivity at high temperatures between refractories and the components in the glass batch.
